Romet unveils 4E prototype; an $8,300 two-seat NEV
The 769-pound (without batteries) 4E is extremely small, yet fairly capable... when compared to other NEVs. The 4E is powered by a pair of DC motors with a combined rating of 4 kW and a 10 kWh battery in one of two flavors; lead acid or lithium-ion. Top speed is listed at 28 miles per hour and range is a more-than-reasonable 62 miles. If Romet gives the 4E the nod, then production could begin next year. With a projected price tag of only €6,000-7,000 ($8,370 to $9,765 U.S. at the current exchange rate), we'd bet that buyers in highly congested urban centers of Western Europe would snatch up the limited production run of 4Es in nothing flat.
